Happy Father's Day!

I am so proud of the father Nathan is.  I'm proud of how he has loved our children.  I am proud of how he stepped up to be a father to once fatherless children.  How he's teaching them about Christ.  And how he is demonstrating faithfulness, hard work, integrity, and selflessness every day.

This crazy crew is so blessed to have our daddy!

The little girls love their daddy.  He has a routine of spending time with them before bed every night.  They read Bible stories, give him back scratches, and talk about their days.  I have no doubt this will be a special memory for them.

Off to a Daddy-daughter dance.
Nathan and Elijah. 
I can only hope Elijah (and all of our children) will follow in his daddy's footsteps of faith!

With Emma.
There is no doubt in my mind that his influence is impacting the choices our girls will make some day.

Grace and her daddy.

An old one, but a picture of Nathan baptizing Hayden. (He's baptized all 3 big kids).
I love that they have the memory of their dad being the one to baptize them!

So, this picture is a few years old too, but I love it. (And Haley doesn't always cooperate for the ya go!)
These two are two peas in a pod.

This precious moment was captured just moments after we met Samuel for the first time.
Such a sweet day!

Our family is so blessed to have the daddy we do.  He loves us, provides for us, and serves us well.  He's an example to our children of what it is to be a godly man, and I am so grateful for the influence he is having on their lives.  (I'm hoping some of his stability will counteract some of the things I'm doing to screw this up - ha!).

Happy Father's Day, Nathan!
